Cards For Emily Blog Hop Day 2 & Getting Cricky Promo Week Day 1!!

Welcome to the Cards for Emily Blog Hop Day 2
Getting Cricky Promotional Week Day 1!!!

Cards for Emily is a 2 day hop so be sure to go back to Day 1 to hop through yesterday's posts for some more inspiration! :)

This is also the first day of Getting Cricky Promotional Week!! Several members of the Getting Cricky Design Team will be featuring a new project every day this week leading up to our monthly blog hop on Friday, February 17. Last month, we each chose one stamp set and used it all week for our projects. This month, we are mixing it up!! We each chose one cartridge or SVG file that we haven't used in more than three months and are using it all week with any stamp set!! The cart I will be featuring all week is Wall Decor and More!!

For the Cards for Emily Blog Hop, if you came from Brenda at then you are at the right place! If you just happened across my blog and are interested in participating then start back at the beginning at Michelle's blog at Scrappin' For Kenzie!

Emily is a sweet little 6 year old girl that has battled Leukemia since before Christmas 2011. She has had to endure more pain in a few short months than most adults in their entire life. She has gone from Leukemia to Rotavirus, to pancreatitis, to kidney stones, then to shingles, not to mention over 300 pokes in her tiny little body! From chemo to blood draws to feeding tube. Her bone marrow is finally at 0.00% so she is now in remission and back at home! She is still going through 7 different chemotherapy treatments but is finally doing better! To read her full story and updates please visit the original Cards for Emily info post HERE

For this hop all we ask is that you hop through the list, then when you are done, link up your card for Emily back at Michelle's blog at Scrappin' For Kenzie. The link up tool is in the left hand side bar under "Cards for Emily". You will see her picture right above it.

REMEMBER: There is no requirement to leave comments or even hop through all of the blogs if you don't have time. There will be no personal candy at any of the stops along the way. That way you can get maximum inspiration to make your own card and have enough time to link it up and send it away!

There WILL be however a giveaway to one lucky winner that links up their card by February 29th 2012. You can link up as many cards/projects that you would like. The more you link up and send the more greater your chance is of winning a.....

$20 gift certificate to

Their etsy store has over 100 stamps to choose from!

Now on to my card for Emily! Today I made her a butterfly card and matching necklace!

I used the card feature from Wall Decor and More, my Getting Cricky Promo Week feature cart. The paper is from DCWV Pocket Full of Poises.

The letters are from the same cart, and I attached the layers with foam tape for dimension.

The tags are Spellbinders Nestabilites Labels 4. "Brave is Beautiful" is from K Andrew Designs Positive Thoughts stamp set. Click HERE to purchase this set or to see the entire fabulous line of stamps!!

I used the butterfly stamp from K Andrew Designs Winged Things stamp set on the inside.

I made Emily a matching butterfly necklace, also cut from Wall Decor and More!! The sparkly purple paper is from Core'dinations Core Couture.

Thank you sooooo much for joining us in this great cause for Cards For Emily!! We REALLY REALLY hope you will participate and link up your card to put a smile on this very beautiful, very deserving little girl that Michelle is honored to call her niece. :)

What a sweet card and gift!!! The card is just beautiful!

Hi, my sweet friend! Thank you for your concern and prayers -- they must have worked... lol!!! I'm really feeling so much better and it helps to be back to crafting and all of you I've missed so!!!

I'll be in and out trying to see more of your wonderful projects, but for now I just wanted to first drop in on everyone -- say "hi" and thanks for being so thoughtful!!!

I'll be back!

Hugs, sweetie!

Karen said...

My sweet friend, this is absolutely gorgeous! I am not surprised in the least that you created another surprise for that brave little girl. I love the sparkly purple and the patterned paper. (I've seen that stack a zillion times and wasn't sure how it would look with cards. Silly me! It's lovely!) I love that you incorporated her name in the design (and they're happy dancing!) and LOVE that made you her a necklace! Such a beautiful gift. And that butterfly fluttering on top? Exquisite! I didn't realize the card feature worked that way. :o) This is one of my favorite carts and I'm excited you're showcasing it!

Exquisite work as always, my busy bee friend! I can't wait to see the oodles of projects you have coming for us! :o) Hugs and blessings!
